Artist's Catalogue No: 540
Acrylic on panel
Image size 60.0 x 85.4 cms
|Note from the Artist: As the title says I went out very early one August morning to begin the preliminary drawing for this.
That drawing became a finished water-colour which was subsequently accidentally destroyed, so I made this much
bigger acrylic as a replacement. The sheep, lapwings and bittern were really there, as described.
The inscription on the frame reads:
WILLIMOTESWICK CASTLE, NORTHUMBERLAND
EARLY MORNING • THE AIR VERY STILL • ONLY THE SOUND OF SHEEP AND LAPWINGS,
AND ONCE, FROM THE VALLEY FLOOR, THE BOOM OF A BITTERN
